The recent refugee ‘crisis’ that reached its peak during 2015-16 paved the way for the adoption of the UN New York Declaration for Refugees and Migrants. This first step was followed by a two year period of negotiations and consultations in two fronts; one on responding to the refugee crisis and the other one on formulating a common managerial scheme for safe orderly and regular migration. Within this context, the current contribution questions the significance of the Global Compact on Migration as a non-legally binding document and explores its potentials as a political platform of commitment; In particular the paper examines the normative effect of this multidimensional exercise and tries to shed light on its impact for the future of multilateral global governance.
